Sao Paulo
Tue, Mar 29, 7:00 PM (GMT-3)

In this event, Prof. Egidio Dorea, director of Aging 2.0 São Paulo, will discuss how the pandemia affected (and is still affecting…) the development of “seniortechs”. For some it was a window of opportunity for rapid growth; for a others, a very difficult time, which in some most unfortunate cases, meant the end of the startup.

In this event, Prof. Egidio Dorea, director of Aging 2.0 São Paulo, will discuss how the pandemia affected (and is still affecting…) the development of “seniortechs”. For some it was a window of opportunity for rapid growth; for a others, a very difficult time, which in some most unfortunate cases, meant the end of the startup. Prof. Dorea invited 2 seniortechs that Aging2.0 São Paulo has been following for a while, to better explore the theme.

The two seniortechs invited to take part on this panel mirror such diverse scenarios.

60+TECH is a startup focused on promoting digital literacy among the 50+ population, which saw its client base expanding rapidly due to the dedication and competence of its founder and collaborators, and to the quality of its material, well designed to its final customers;

EUVO is a practical and efficient mobility App dedicated mostly to the 50+ population. In 2018 it was among the 3 winners of Aging São Paulo’s first “Brazilian Seniortech Search”, and had been showing steady demand for its services, and also expanding its B2B awareness. When the pandemia reached Brazil, EUVO experienced a serious decrease of its client base, that challenged its founders’resiliency – which actually proved to be stronger than the crisis: EUVO pursued its endeavour and recently the seniortech closed a B2B contract.

Aging2.0 São Paulo has been supportive of the innovation environment in Brazil, and will continue, through its partnership with Ativen to strengthen the “seniortech” pillar, to establish it as an important option to future founders.
